How to Get Compensation for Your Injuries and Other Damages from Uber
If you are a victim of an Uber accident, you have a legal right to recover compensation for your injuries, damage to property, and other damages resulting from the accident. However, Uber claims not to be a transportation company. Uber drivers are not considered employees of Uber. They are instead independent contractors. The vehicles that the drivers use also do not belong to Uber. Uber drivers are therefore required to carry their own insurance.
In the past, if you were injured in an Uber accident, you would not be able to pursue compensation from Uber. However, New Jersey laws now require Uber to carry commercial insurance to cover passengers and other third parties injured in accidents involving Uber vehicles. Uber now maintains a separate commercial insurance policy that covers up to $1.5 million in bodily injuries and property damage. This means that you can now recover compensation for your injuries and other damages from Uber’s insurance policy if you were an Uber passenger or another road user injured in an Uber accident.
However, don’t expect recovering compensation from Uber to be easy. There are several conditions that must be met in order to access Uber’s Insurance Policy. For example, if an Uber driver crashed into your car but had the app off at the time of the accident, you will not be able to access Uber’s insurance policy. You will instead have to pursue the driver’s personal insurance policy. This can be complicated especially when the driver is uninsured or underinsured.

Our law firm will investigate your claim and identify the at-fault party or parties. We will identify all avenues for seeking compensation and devise a strong strategy for your case.
